Killing Them Softly

Other mistake: When Mickey gets shot there is a close-up of the pistol.The empty shell casings coming out in slow motion are from blank rounds.

Continuity mistake: In the restaurant scene, Jackie and Mickey are having a discussion. The latter drinks martinis and then steals the former's beer. In one shot, Mickey's drinking deeply from the beer glass, and then puts it down, but in the next shot, there are only martini glasses on the restaurant table.

Continuity mistake: When they are drinking martinis and beer, he is about to drink the martini and the glass is full - he starts talking about why he might be going to jail for a shotgun. As he is talking they cut away to Brad Pitt and then back and the glass is empty sitting on the table. They cut back to Brad Pitt as he is still talking and then back again and the glass is full as he is taking a sip.

Continuity mistake: Just after the beginning, the Aussie man, walking with a tiny dog, has an ice cream in his hand that vanishes - one second it's there and the next second it's gone.


Jackie Cogan: My friend, Thomas Jefferson is an American saint because he wrote the words 'All men are created equal', words he didn't believe since he allowed his own children to live in slavery. He's a rich white snob who's sick of paying taxes to the Brits. So, yeah, he writes some lovely words and aroused the rabble and they went and died for those words while he sat back and drank his wine and fucked his slave girl. This guy wants to tell me we're living in a community? Don't make me laugh. I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now fuckin' pay me.
